HumiliationNation II: Sox Scalded By Jays, 14-1

(Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)It's fitting, isn't it? The Red Sox began their 'contention-ending' road trip with a 14-1 win at SkyDome, and they start their first lame-duck homestand with a loss to those same Jays by that same score of 14-1. This team has clearly given up: they are beaten, humiliated and lifeless. The most disgraceful performance was Felix...

Felix Doubront’s Frustrating Season Hits Low In Red Sox’s Blowout Loss

BOSTON — Felix Doubront hasn’t been shy about voicing his frustration. Now, the Red Sox have just as much reason to be frustrated. Doubront, who is unhappy about pitching out of the bullpen rather than starting, laid a stinker in relief Monday, surrendering six earned runs — he also allowed two inherited runners to score — on six hits and two walks over two thirds of an inning...

David Ross On Felix Doubront: ‘Hard To Be Sharp’ In Long-Relief Role

A few days after making comments about not being happy in his limited role, Boston Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront didn’t do himself any favors after a tough relief outing in a 14-1 blowout loss at home against the Toronto Blue Jays. The long reliever gave up six hits and allowed six earned runs in just 2/3 innings, and his ERA is now 6.07 on the season. However, catcher David Ross...

Felix Doubront High-Fives Young Fan In Bullpen At Tropicana Field (Video)

Felix Doubront has made it abundantly clear that he is not happy with his transition from starter to long reliever. That didn’t stop him from having a little fun in the bullpen on Sunday, though. The ‘pens at Tampa Bay’s Tropicana Field are located along the foul lines rather than behind the outfield fence, allowing relievers to mingle with fans if they so choose. Doubront...

Felix Doubront wouldn't mind a trade, unhappy with role in Boston Red Sox's bullpen

When Jake Peavy was traded to the San Francisco Giants on Saturday, Felix Doubront figured he wouldn't be chosen to take Peavy's starting spot for Sunday's game. Doubront had pitched out of the bullpen Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and hasn't started since June 20. But he was still holding out hope the Boston Red Sox would move him back to the starting rotation...

Whatever Happened to Felix Doubront?

The answer to this question is easy. He is buried in the Sox bullpen. When the season began, the 26-year-old Venezuelan was listed as the number 4 starter behind Jon Lester, John Lackey and Jake Peavy. But after a poor start and the emergence of Brandon Workman and Rubby DeLa Rosa (and later return of Clay Buchholz) he was exiled to the pen in the notorious spot of “long reliever”...

Felix Doubront Unhappy About Situation He’s Facing With Boston Red Sox

Felix Doubront just wants to pitch. Doubront hasn’t had much of an opportunity of late, as the left-hander essentially has been relegated to mop-up duty in the Boston Red Sox’s bullpen. It’s a harsh reality that Doubront isn’t too thrilled about. “I’m doing my work and trying to stay sharp. My mind is positive but this sucks,” Doubront told The Boston Globe’s Peter...

REPORT: Doubront Could Be On Trade Block

(Jeff Zelevansky/Getty Images)According to a report by Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything), Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront might be on the trading block. The rationale postulated by Cafardo cites the recent excellent performances by both Brandon Workman and Rubby Del La Rosa—making Doubront somewhat expendable. One AL GM is quoted...

Boston Red Sox: Young arms stabilizing rotation

For a Boston Red Sox team that has yet to find any sort of consistency amongst the entire roster through 69 games, bright spots have been few and far between. But after injuries shelved Felix Doubront and Clay Buchholz — two important members of last year’s team who had failed to find the same success this season — a duo of young arms have emerged and stabilized what could...

Boston Red Sox: Solving the Felix Doubront problem

Year three was supposed to be the season he broke out. The young, left-handed Felix Doubront came into spring training in noticeably better shape and seemed destined to finally put it all together for a full season after an 11-6 campaign in 2013. Instead, Doubront has done the opposite, and has fallen flat on his face out of the gates, taking steps backwards rather than progressing...
